2023 St George Club Championships

A number of games from Rounds 1 and 2 are now accessible via the links in the table at the top of the Results page. They can be viewed using a simple viewer, or, for more options, using the Chessbase viewer.

The Newsletter for Round 2, written up by Charles Zworestine, is here. For earlier editions, see the Results page.

The results (for completed games) up to the end of Round 3 (and pairings for all rounds) for all six divisions are up here. 

The 2023 Club Championship started Tuesday March 7 – nine rounds, classical time-control. The turn-out was very pleasing, with sixty players. Thus, the tournament has six divisions, each with 10 contestants, of roughly equal rating.  The structure of the tournament is described here.

Vale Geoff Britton


In very sad news, one of our oldest members, Geoff Britton, recently passed away.  Geoff was an absolute gentleman, and is remembered fondly by all in the club.

You can follow one of Geoff’s finest  games at St George here.
